ZOOM THIS INCREDIBLE HISTORIC PHOTO
Photo taken the year Union Station opened, 1896. Notice the horse & wagon for The Merchant Hotel. It was located at 52 West 3rd Ave as displayed in the 1931 phone book. Behind it is the livery for Portland Hotel.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE PORTLAND HOTEL
Construction halted due to funds in 1881. Portland business leaders grouped together to finish it 1889 & opened in 1890. So much history here.
